Toby Regbo as James Sveck

  • (Toby Regbo) "Can I ask you something?"
  • (Peter Gallagher) "What?"
  • (Toby Regbo) "Are you gay?"
  • (Life Coach) "So, you think you're not normal?"

  • (Life Coach) "How so?"
  • (Toby Regbo) "There's people everywhere. Everyone's got a rhythm of their own. I don't have one. I can see everyone moving to that beat, you know. Gotta go now. Gotta get there, here. Laughing, dancing, whatever, and -- all I hear is silence, like there's something way down deep inside of me, some minor defect in the most hidden recesses of the second chromosome of my DNA, that makes me -- different."

You see, He/She/It believes that if an artist has a name, then people pay for that name rather than for the art. It's a way of separating the artist from the art."
